There are many things wrong here. The room was clean. That was the only positive. This was my second stay and the same issues were still a problem. I gave them a second chance as there can be issues on any given day that will never recur and should not reflect on a property. However, once those things are reported and they continue to happen I will not stay there again. The cable is off and on, the volume of the tv was not adjustable. Some channels were not available at all. My first stay there there was no cable tv at all for the entire night. I told the front desk, but it was not corrected. The air conditioner could not be changed from ice cold/high setting. Checkout is at 11am, but at 10:30 while I was showering and preparing to leave, housekeeping knocked loudly then tried to enter the room without permission. If I had not used the deadbolt and bar lock, they would have walked right in. While loading my car at 10:45 I had to make two trips. In the middle of this, my key card was deactivated. I could not get back into the building at the back entry or reenter my room. Had to walk all the way around to the front of the property in the pouring rain to get the key card reactivated. So, given the multiple nice options for stays in Blowing Rock, this won't be my choice again.

Rooms were clean and fresh. We aren’t able to comment on the breakfast because we didn’t have any, but enjoyed the hot coffee. Observations: the signage is terrible combined with the narrow entrance. Our one complaint: the back parking lot is not lit. There are no lights! None! So while you wear your mask to stay safe, it’s not wise to to be in the parking lot alone. Because: #safety. Black as night. I don’t even think you can see the curb where the sidewalk joins the parking lot.

Air conditioner worked poorly. Either freezing cold or none at all. No working phone to contact front desk. Staff not masked in lobby even though required. Did not feel Covid safe. I would like my money back.

We were pretty disappointed with our stay here. Their website speaks about the great night’s sleep you will have. Not for us. There were various machinery beeping and ringing sounds throughout the night in our room. It was also warm in the room even on the lowest setting. (Possibly because the air vent couldn’t be adjusted and it was pointing down to the floor.) They talk about how wonderful their breakfast is. They were constantly out of everything. It took a long time waiting around to even get a plate full. (And it wasn’t even crowded.) I’m sure they are understaffed like many other places right now, but it was frustrating. The employees putting out the food were also not wearing masks. That wouldn’t have bothered me pre-Covid, but it was definitely concerning these days. (I realize policies on that vary per location) At the price that is charged we were expecting more.
